of citigroup which bet on the housing market to collapse and his backing of the deregulation of wall street. what do you believe the deregulation of wall street pushed by people like alan greenspan contributed significantly to the disaster we saw on wall street several years ago? >> i don't personally know the extent to which deregulation drove it, but i don't believe deregulation was the proximate cause. >> we will speak with former financial regulator william black, author of "the best way to rob a bank is to own one." and matt taibbi with this new piece, the tax secrets and lies of the bella." >> par sabbai the treasury, it is all done by ex wall street people and current wall street people. ordinary people really do not have input into any of this. >> then, haiti. three years after the earthquake that killed over 300,000 people, we speak to jonathan katz, author of, "the big truck that went by: how the world came to save haiti and left behind a disaster." all of that and more coming up. this is "democracy now!,", the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman at least

, it took-- i bet you i fell 500 meters." that's how far you'd go. and you see that. any questions on all this? so we're really summarizing what we talked about last time. there's a difference between how much you pick up speed, okay, and between how fast you're going and how far you're going. and for falling things, the acceleration will always be the same, 10 meters per second per second. later on we'll round that off to 9.8 meters per second, per second, okay? but 10s are easier to deal with, right? and we find out that how fast we go is simply the acceleration multiplied to how long you're falling. it makes sense. and how far you go has to do with the time squared. so it's averaging out 5t squared. how we got that is derived in the footnote of your book, and you can kind of go back and look at that if you want. i don't expect you to derive that. i want you to just know this doesn't pop out of the air and magic, okay? there's a reason for this. now, we talked how that came about last time. look it up if you want. what's kind of interesting is the behavior of the ball when it rol

answers and as it turn out later on, that maybe the answer you had was wrong. but i'll bet you this, by the end of the semester, you guys will be able to answer all these questions comfortably. okay? here's an example. i got a piece of clay and the keys. clay is significantly heavier than the keys. when i drop them, they both fall together. why didn't the clay fall faster? hc? how come? [laughter] we gonna find out there's a reason for that. and we gonna find out that the fellow by the name of galileo, who first did that, the leaning tower of pisa. he was reported to have dropped a heavy, heavy ball and a light one, and foom, they both fell about together. and at that time, people thought that heavy things fell faster than light things. and galileo demolished all the physics at that point by showing that, wow, it was wrong that heavy things fall faster than light things. that's only in the presence of air resistance. but without the air drag, both fall together. and galileo couldn't answer the question "why?" and guess who's gonna be able to answer that question "why"? look at the p

-- you do not want to bet your house on the outcome, but i would say the likelihood is they're not going to be allowed to get an assault weapons ban through. >> how about a clip? >> i don't think ultimately they will get that, either, because i don't think you can make a case that you could really regulate it. these things cost virtually nothing. you and david gregory could find them. but the fact is, we live in a situation where first of all we have constitutional rights and secondly, there are millions upon millions of americans who value the rights they have under the second eminent and are involved in shooting sports bar use firearms for self-defense, and we think they will be heard. >> that was the nra president. an abc news/washington post poll shows support for gun control measures is on the rise, finding 54% of americans are in favor stricter gun control laws in general. nearly 60% short -- support a ban on high-capacity ammunition clips. a recent poll showed that the federal assault weapons ban was in place for 10 years, far fewer high-capacity guns were found at crime sce

occasion. america prevails and america prosperous. [applause] and those who bet against this country have inevitably been on the wrong side of history. so it is a good moment to gaze upward and behold the statue of freedom at the top of the capitol dome. it is a good moment to gain strength and courage and humility from those who are determined to complete the half- finished dome. it is a good moment to rejoiced today at this 57 presidential inaugural ceremony, and it is the perfect moment to renew our collective faith in the future of america.

mountain i bet some of my friends ride their bikes in the springtime. child: i do! do you? yeah. hendrick: and let's keep in mind how important consistent but flexible daily routines are to our children with special needs. children with learning delays, children in wheelchairs, and children unable to speak especially need to know that their needs will be tended to in a responsive, consistent way and that if they need a little extra time or assistance, their teacher will help. no, not look at it. take it to your mouth. good girl. lay it down. good girl. [girl crying] hendrick: we begin our examination of daily routines with one of the first events of te day. does this look familiar? there comes a point in almost every baby's life when she feels very strongly about being left by her parent. often referred to as "separation anxiety," the child might sob frantically and seem absolutely inconsolable when separating from her family member. our handling of separation anxiety is really important for our children's emotional well-being. so what helps? what could you do to help a child se
